An alkali-assisted cooperative assembly process of two different templating systems with aluminosilicate precursors is described. A highly ordered mesoporous zeolite with the 2D hexagonal symmetry mesospores and MFI zeolitic framework walls is synthesized. This method also allows the preparation of ZSM-5 with c- or b-axis-aligned mesopores. The materials have promising catalytic activities for organic reactions involving bulky molecules.
